  1. Sometimes I think when I go there again ( after only 2 years) I'll encounter a totally new society regarding people's appearance!
    One mistake that most foreigners make is that they think Maghna'eh is Chador. Did you notice he said the girl who was making a phone call from a public Telephone wears a chador? And he said that mostly poor people wear chador. I'm not very sure about this statement if he has taken maghna'eh for the real chador!

    Thanks for sharing it!
